Surprise, surprise! Analysis with a supercomputer has found thousands of molecular switches in cells (see the full article in ScienceDaily).

But the researchers' assumption that 'evolution might stumble upon a switch' overlooks the obvious--that it processed its way to making a new one because it calculated a need for it.

Ditto the insertion, deletion and transfer of segments of DNA in organism. The processing over large timescales with low-power molecular-logic machines is slowly working things out.

Bio-molecular logic is a self-programming, self-modifying, self-improving, self-exploratory, self-analysing network of molecular machines beavering away at the base of an organism.
